Safety Stock


As per my understanding safety stock behave just as information which we can set automatically through historical data or entering manually. I was thinking safety stock will not affect ATP check.

but at my current client place if you 100 KG stock in hand and safety stock is 110 KG. Now in this situation if you try to create sales order for 20 KG then system does not confirm qty & says item has no open qty. My client want to confirm sales order in this situation. They want if stock touch to safety level then it should plan for procurement/production but if we have stock in hand even under safety stock in this case also it should confirm qty to sales order. Can you help me to understand where should I maintain these kind of settings?

If safety stock itself behave like these then why we need minimum safety stock?
